As part of my Fulbright project, I was conducting music and film workshops with heroin addicts receiving care at the ASCMP Clinic in Tangier. This clinic is the only one of its kind in the Northern Morocco and it was there I met the poet Mohammed and a singer named Hana. Before her addiction, Hana wanted to be a professional singer. Mohammed loved rapping. On this particular workshop, I had my brother Din, lead singer of zerobridge, come with me to work on a song with Hana and Mohammed.
The song was based on a poem written by Mohammed called Aji, Shouf, Sma'a, or Come, Look, Listen. It is about how one can fall into fatal addictions from smaller, lesser addictions, from poverty. from boredom. Mohammed had written a very insightful an sincere story about addiction and Hana was brave enough to sing the chorus in a voice that is truly rich, beautiful, and telling of the hardships she has faced. The verses are sung in spoken word forum. (Mohammed is a big Eminem fan.)
Special thanks to Hicham and Hanan, two brilliant social workers who are leading efforts to care for the addicts at ASCMP Clinic.
